Presents and a swap


My friend Diana sent me a sewing-project along with the scraps she sent me for Violas I SPY (finished quilting, it needs binding).
Viola and I worked on this together, and it was a lot of fun :-)

She asked me where we live, and when I showed her Denmark on the map, she said " Yipee! We live in a purple country!"
Lucky for us, for -as Diana said when I told her- it would be such a shame to have to move, because we were living in a red or a green country!!

But then.....look what I got in the mail!!
Diana sent me this sunrise wallhanging, not as a swap -just because! Thank you so much Diana! I love it!

I have finished my July miniquilt for the Flickr swap...
Here's a sneak peek
I'll show you the whole miniquilt once it has reached its new home!

Love the red and blue quilt - simple and beautiful! Your Sunrise hanging looks great. Looks like your mini quilt is shaping up well.
